Stay at Our Welcoming Columbia, Illinois Hotel

In the shadow of St. Louis' Gateway Arch on the banks of the mighty Mississippi River, you'll find this quiet suburban community. Our Columbia hotel is conveniently located adjacent to I-255, less than 15 miles from downtown St. Louis and minutes from southern St. Louis County. Discover Columbia's small-town Midwestern charm when you stay at our Hampton Inn St. Louis-Columbia hotel.

We are here to make your wedding plans easier for you. Book a block of rooms for your guests where they can see historic landmarks and visit the 60-story Gateway Arch while you are busy with your bridesmaids and groomsmen preparing for your perfect day or evening wedding. If your guests decide to arrive early or stay after your wedding, they can explore the Contemporary Art Museum, tour the Anheuser-Busch Brewery or cheer on the Cardinals or Blues, then drive out of the hustle and bustle and back to the relaxing calm of our Columbia hotel.
